Product Details

Region and Country

Bundibugyo District, Uganda


Cocoa in Uganda was introduced during the British colonial era and has since grown to be a significant source of income for thousands of rural smallholder farmers. Development and production have mainly been focused in one region.  More than 60% of Ugandan cocoa comes from the Bundibugyo district in western Uganda).

These beans are produced by approximately 3,500 small-holder organic cocoa farmers in cooperation with a local social enterprise. Over half of the farmers involved are women.

The producers receive at least 20% more for their wet cocoa than what other buyers pay in the area. In addition, the company provides many services to producers including: trainings on best agricultural practices and money management as well as microfinance. Since its inception, the social enterprise has had a positive impact on the incomes and livelihoods of the associated farmers.
